However, newsmen who have
been following the Wallace cam-
paign pointed out that most of
the labor leaders represented
union locals from Alabama.
Wallace was pestered by heck-
lers at each stop he made, includ-
ing nearly 350 in Lansing. Most
of the Lansing hecklers were stu-
dents from MSU and nearby
Oliziet.
The students in Lansing chant-
ed and heckled throughout most
of Wallace's speech. One student
used a mirror to reflect the sun
in Wallace's eyes. However, Wal-
lace gamely attacked the students
with his stolk "put-downs."
"You guys over there better just
shut up," he said at one point,
"or we won't promote you to the
second grade."
Later Wallace became more
viscous in his attacks at the stu-
dent hecklers. "I thought we got
rid of our Nazis in World War II,
but I see there are still some of
you left.
"You folks out there better tell
the kids to have their day of fun
now, beacuse after Nov. 5, they
are going to be through in this
country.
Wallace then launched into his
other major theme of the cam-

told the crowd that as presidentl
he would never allow a "single
dime" of federal tax money to be
used to bus people to schools they
didn't want to be bused to "not
in Michigan. not in Alabama, not
anywhere else in the country."
About 200 Flint blacks jeered and
booed Wallace, during his speech
and sang and chanted "freedom
and peace." A violent shouting?
match developed between t h e s e
blacks and white Wallace support-
ers just before Wallace began his
speech.
One of Wallace's staff took the

microphone and told the crowd
"I want you folks to look here. We
have 11,000 Wallace fans, and a
handful of no-goods."
In Lansing after the end of
Wallace's speech, roving groups of
students, both black and white,
confronted the Wallace support-
ers, in an attempt to force some
sort of dialogue and badger the
Wallace people about their beliefs.
A brief fist fight began im-
mediately after the speech be-
tween a young black and several
Wallace supporters. However, one
of the ever-present security men
quickly broke up the fight.

must stop this anarchist move-

for you to walk in the street."
Wallace pledged the "moral sup-
port of the federal government"
to the nation's police force it
elected.
"With the state 'of lawe and

knocked on the head leaving the
stadium tonight, the person would
be out of jail before you got to the
hospital, and on the next day,
they'd be trying the cop who ar-

Wallace himself was extremely
security conscious throughout the
day. In neither Flint nor Lansing
did he shake hands with the

Included in, Wallace's security
forces at Lansing alone, were Ing-

Michigan state police, the Secret
Service, Wallace's own security
staff,and two Lansing meter-
maids.
Police manned the roof tops of
hotels and buildings across from
the capitol, and were armed with
binoculars, walkie-talkies and
high-powered carbines. The crowd
in Lansing was separated from
Wallace by steel-linked c h a i n s,
